You asked and we listened! There are countless stair runner options out there, so we’ve rounded up our go-to styles by one of our favorite designers. We received an overwhelming response from our recent Instagram post (check it out here if you’re in need of a laugh) to share our favorite stair runner options.

In the post, we demonstrated why adding a stair runner to hardwood stairs is a safety precaution we encourage clients to take. A runner on stairs provides a safe place to walk, added comfort, and an aesthetic you really can’t beat.

Our Rug Designer of Choice

With all the runner options available, you certainly don’t have to compromise style for safety. There are thousands of stair runner options out there, so we’ve rounded up our favorite styles by one of our favorite designers: Loloi.

Loloi makes “rugs for the thoughtfully layered home. For spaces designed with intention”. They stand behind their rug’s durability, so you’ll have a beautifully-designed rug that will look great now and for decades to come. Loloi also is a proud partner to GoodWeave, a non-profit company that audits their factories in India. This ensures no child, forced, or bonded labor is used to make our rugs. Awesome, right?

We hope you love these stair runner options for your home as much as we do!

Obsessed, right?! While we selected these runners for the stairs, they would also make great options for hallways, kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and more! We love our Loloi rugs and find they hold up well in high-traffic areas.

Classic and Relaxed

It’s no coincidence that the pattern of Loloi’s Francis collection gives off a tilework vibe. It’s design is based on the favorite flooring patterns of the designer, from tilework to parquet flooring. The runner is 100% wool, and the diamond and grid patterns soften to create a relaxed feel. You can check it out here.

Antique Chic

We love this look. The distressed pattern with rich saturated colors reminds us of a well-worn antique rug at with the hint of chic flair we all desire. Loloi’s Billie Collection is printed, but boasts a cross-woven texture, which gives a soft feel. You can shop it here.
